All About Mrs. Gillespie

   Welcome to Room A6!  My name is Kristin Gillespie and I will be your 
child’s teacher for the upcoming school year here at Etiwanda Colony 
Elementary.  This is my fifteenth year teaching first grade in the Etiwanda 
School District.  I am thrilled about being involved in your child’s learning 
experience.  I look forward to your child being a part of our class.  Our 
year will be filled with excitement, growth, new challenges, and 
responsibilities.  It is my goal to provide an enriching, motivational, and 
rewarding class environment. I am excited about the many new and wonderful 
educational discoveries our class will be making this year!
   I received my Bachelors Degree in Liberal Studies as well as my teaching 
credential from California State University San Bernardino.  CSUSB is 
actually where I first met my husband.  We have been married for eight years 
and have two beautiful daughters.  Ashlyn, our oldest, will be turning seven 
at the end of August.  She is in first grade at Colony this school year. 
Elyssa, our youngest, will be turning three in November.  Both girls keep
us busy and smiling each and every day!
   I am looking forward to sharing a wonderful year with you and your child.  
I have high expectations of myself, and my students, and know that if we all 
work together, we can make this school year educational and enjoyable for
